Awaited the return of vision after shutting off the lights. At home. With the sudden absence of data coming from the visual cortex. Your eyes need time to adjust to the light. A strange sensation. I’m usually in too much of a hurry to leave the room. This time, I shut off the light and just stood still.
The perfect time of night. Just enough outside light that my eyes can adjust slowly. Not black. But, also not bright daylight. I touched something. When there is no visual information arriving, while my visual cortex relaxes and there is an awareness that something more exists. You can feel it even when you can’t see it. Bizarre experience.
